more evidence supporting the role of intestinal microbes in regulating inflammation via the substances they produce(various peptides).

http://www.plosone.org/article/info%...A+New+Articles)

makes me think about SCD yogurt, not only are you getting the bacteria in large numbers, but theoretically may be getting other molecules they create which may help reduce inflammation when fermented at 24 hours rather then then 4 hours most commercial yogurt is fermented at, with some brands being exceptions to that rule.

here is a study on how the intestinal bacteria may regulate the production of antimicrobial peptides on the intestinal lining, further suggesting the cause of crohns disease is from disruption of the bacterial flora.

From an independant newspaper for GI docs:

ACG Abuzz With FMT

Recent studies presented at the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) 2013 Annual Scientific Meeting demonstrated the potential for fecal microbiota transplantation (FMT). The new data show promise for FMT in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

Today I'm going to contact our local newspapers and tv stations to ask them to put do stories on this up and coming treatment.

Any other ideas how we can create heightened awareness w/the pharmaceutical companies and GI doctors to make this happen?

Let's get together and let them hear from us how great it would be to have cures and non-threatening treatment options.

I'm proud to say that this report is included in the original post of this thread in the first section titled: 1. HISTORY OF FECAL TRANSPLANTS- its success so far. This report was originally brought to my attention by fellow forum member sir.clausin .

there is also another report of the successful treatment of crohn's with a fecal transplant from the u.k http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24239403
Also in section 1 is a link to the first 3 crohn's patients successfully treated by doctor borody of australia which was presented at the American College of Gastroeneterology annual scientific meeting in 2011.

What is amazing is that the complete remissions induced By Fecal transplants can be maintained without any drugs, and strongly suggests these patients may be cured, in a similar fashion to the way Fecal transplants seemed to have cured Ulcerative colitis patients which was reported by borody in 2003.

Here is an introduction to Denis Burkitt's research around 1960. He proposed the idea that stool quality due to fiber in the diet may explain the dramatic differences in diseases between industrialized and non industrialized societies.

since we now know fiber feeds all the good bacteria in the intestines, and that stool is a result of bacterial fermentation, this supports the new research that restoring a damaged microbiome with a fecal transplant could make sense for treating many of these diseases of industrialzed society, low fiber puts us at risk for damage to the microbiome.

Professor borody has also observed a patient recover from multple sclerosis from a fecal transplant to treat his constipation symptoms, and fecal transplant are in clinical trials right now to treat a form of diabetes, with many other hopeful appications for the restoration of damaged intestinal flora.

NEWS: Poop banks already supplying Stool to the medical industry for fecal transplants.


my thoughts: its likely by the time fecal; transplants are proven to work in IBD by the end of this year, some of the infrastructure to enable us to have them done by our GI will be built as they are being used for c difficle at the moment.

NEWS:

Policy: How to regulate faecal transplants.
From the journal, nature February 19 2014.

http://www.nature.com/news/policy-ho...plants-1.14720

The current situation is one of both under- and over-regulation. FMT for recurrent C. difficile infections can be performed without any mandatory screening, whereas FMT for other indications cannot be performed without an IND, a hurdle that will dissuade some physician–investigators.
My Thoughts:
Despite 10 studies for fecal transplant in IBD this year, it still may be some time before we can have it through gi, stay tuned to find out how this all pans out.

thanks hugh. yea its always great to hear or read borody say it aloud: ulcerative colitis has been cured with a fecal transplant. he has stated this a few times already. It may be the same for crohn's. from what i read and experianced, i believe it will cure crohns too.

Hi All, I'm a grad student in science journalism, writing an article about fecal transplants and Crohn's. If anyone is interested in talking about their experiences with the treatment please shoot me an email ([email protected]) thanks!

NEWS:

Here is a new testimony of a women with crohn's who achieved a complete remission with a single Fecal Transplant done with a Nasogastric tube through Doctor Borodys clinic in Australia. She believes she is cured and she very well could be. This is the second report of an astounding success with a single dose of FMT in Crohn's Disease, although not an official report, it definitely counts. Borody may also eventually speak directly about these experiences in the coming months.

wait a sec.... she did this fecal transplant 12 years ago!!! and is still in "remission", i suppose that's why Borody suggests that it is a cure for crohn's.

also, this seems to be the same article although the links are different, either way, this may be the original source link of the article, so that's a great find.
